Ume Natural Incense - new fragrances and packaging

Ume Incense Sticks have no bamboo core so we categorise them as a Japanese Style Incense. The spicy fragrances from this range will take you on aromatic journeys across counties/regions such as China, Tibet, Nepal and the Middle East.

The Ume range has been refreshed and features some new fragrances:



  • Abydos - a pure Frankincense
  • Dawn - top notes of Hinoki (Japanese Cypress)
  • Nomadic - a mysterious and oriental fragrance
  • Uluru - Australian Sandalwood
Features of all Ume Quality Incense sticks are that they are traditional, high-grade incense sticks made using 100% aromatic plant ingredients - herbs, spices, barks, seeds & saps - bound with water with no fillers. View the full Ume range here - which includes other fragrances and delightful handmade Incense dishes.

Cinnamon is also a very popular fragrance for Christmas:
I hope this helps - as always, do get in touch if you would like help or advice regarding Incense types, fragrances and brands.
